Eminem has teased a new album release by dropping a fiery track in which he discusses GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, police violence, Colin Kaepernick, and Apple Watches.
The song, called “Campaign Speech,” features complex, multisyllabic rhyme schemes over a minimal beat. Eminem pulls no punches, discussing how he’d like to put George Zimmerman, who fatally shot Trayvon Martin — sparking the Black Lives Matter movement — in an “orange uniform.”
He also calls Trump a “loose cannon,” who’s “blunt with his hand on the button,” most likely a nod to the concern of critics who fear Trump having the ability to launch nuclear weaponsshould he become president.
The song was uploaded Wednesday morning and has more than 30,000 views on YouTube. The lyrics are explicit.
